Need to create simple, basic buttons for use in your Web site or online help? Have a look at Buttonator:

At first glance, not the most esthetic choices, but for a quick fix if you're (like me) graphically challenged, these might be a good solution until you can create something more elegant. In particular, note that despite the appearances of the buttons at the right of the page, you can specify the font and background color separately using the tools towards the bottom left of the window... so you can boldface and invert the font to provide more contrast.

Note that if you turn the buttons into hyperlinks, don't forget to add the "alt" text for visually impaired visitors to your site so their screen readers will know what to make of the buttons.
